We’ve all heard of Health Insurance, but it’s not uncommon to hear the term “Ancillary Benefits” in the same sentence. But while everyone is familiar with health insurance, not everyone is equally familiar with ancillary benefits. So, what exactly are they and should you be offering them to your employees?
First and foremost, while health insurance is just health insurance, ancillary benefits can be made up of a variety of different insurance and benefits offerings made available to your employees. Oftentimes, instead of listing out each and every benefit and insurance offering a company may offer, the term “ancillary” may be used instead.
Potential Ancillary Benefits Offerings
But despite the unfamiliarity of the term, the types of insurance benefit offerings it can refer to are all too common. Offerings such as Dental and Vision insurance, Term Life insurance, Long-Term Disability Insurance, LifeLock, Pet Insurance, among many others are among the most popular ancillary benefit offerings companies and associations can offer their employees.
